Petri and Moroni families in Orentano + Ricciardi family

Postby 5bellasmiths » 06 Feb 2010, 20:43

Hello everyone,
I started doing research on the Italian side of my husband's family because we want to apply for dual citizenship however now I am completely hooked on genealogy and trying to get more information for our family tree. :)

This is what I know: My husband's mother's father was Perfetto Petri who was born in Orentano 26 Feb 1903. His parents were Giulia Moroni (born around 1879) and Attilio Petri (born around 1870).

The Ricciardi name comes from my husband's mother's mother's side and I don't know very much at all about this side. My husband's Ggrandfather was Louis Ricciardi and he was born in Italy (not sure where) around 1876. I don't know when he came to the US but he did move to New Kensingon, PA. I believe his wife was also from Italy and I think her name might have been Madolyn? It was tough to read on the census forms.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

This is so exciting! I could never figure out what Madalena's name was because it's written as "Maddy" or "Madolyn" and a few other variations in the later census documents. Thank you so much.
